>> happy saint patrick's day. >> happy saint patrick's day. the best irish day of the year. >> bill: also jesse watters on the loose on saint patrick's day. >> who is the most famous irish guy in america right now? >> right now cardinal dollan. >> what about bill o'reilly? >> bill: watters world upcoming. >> caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone, the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. is america still the land of opportunity? that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. as alert americans well know, president obama is trying to fundamentally change the u.s.a. he sees our system as basically unfair. and wants to provide more services and money to those who don't have very much. the republican party says the president's social justice outlook is damaging the freezing rain structure of the country.
high taxation and high debt are holding back the economy and the g.o.p. believes mr. obama is creating a nation at war with itself. the affluent vs. the nonaffluent. over the weekend senator ted cruze of texas, a conservative, delivered a very emotional speech at cpac. >> my father came from cuba. he had been in prison. he had been tortured in cuba. and he came to texas with nothing, with 100 in his underwear. didn't speak a word of english. washed dishes making 50 cents an hour. in someone had came up to that 18-year-old kid avenue as he was washing dishes and suggested to him that 55 years hence his son would be sworn into office as a united states senator representing the great state of texas. [ applause ]
that would have been unimaginable. >> now mr. cruze says his dad made it on his own without government assistance. he worked hard and provide for his family and now his son has achieved the american dream. that's the way this country is supposed to work. but president obama himself has a very compelling story to tell. his father abandoned him. he was raised primarily by his maternal grandparents in hawaii. he had few resources. yet, barack obama rose up to become the most powerful man in the world, a stunning achievement.how much d mr. obama is unknown as his college records have been kept private. we don't know the extent of affirmative action. we don't know how much the government subsidized his climb to the top. it would be very helpful to have that information simply to be fair to the president and his vision there is no president obama believes his discuss is is due to government that goes to the famous line "you didn't build that."
so the battle lines are now drawn between senator cruise who believes in the free market and small government and president obama who wants the government partially regulate the economy and is trying to impose a giant co-loss us is in washington. that's the struggle that we the american people are enduring right now. in the end there will be no compromise. one side or the other is going to have to prevail and that's the memo. top story tonight reaction joining us from washington is mary katharineham and juan williams both a fox news analyst. juan, i assume you are on the big government side. >> you are right mr. o'reilly. >> well, you just want to is sit there and look dopey or tell me why. >> typically you say to me give me a one word answer please you. yes, i'm on the side of big government in this instance activist government just recently got this country out of recession. i think they bailed out wall street and wall street right now is doing very well for a lot of people who have investments, pensions, so that's good
news. i think an activist government is responsible for helping out america's seniors. when you think about medicare, social security, nobody says oh, that's evidence that you have got your hand out. no, that's a government program that helps to protect vulnerable people in society. >> without any proof, because it's purely speculation. you say that all the trillions of stimulus money has worked and thought economy is on the right track. okay. i mean, but, again, it's speculation. you don't know that we might not have spent a nickel and been in the same position we are now. mary katharine, you say? >> well, i think the issue is not one of big government or no government, which is -- that's how liberals often try to frame it. when, in fact, what can happen is that when you have an activist government who is doing too many things, they become corrupt. wasteful. pretty bad at helping people. it doesn't allow for innovation or new ideas frequently because the government is a pretty clumsy instrument for doing those things.
diverting a bunch of money to the federal government which can be cronyism, corruption, awful these things is maybe not the best way to help your fellow man which is an important part of life. conservatives look at the situation and go look, tell me how you are actually helping. it tell me how these programs are actually doing the job they are supposed to be doing without wasting and misusing fun. you don't often get the answer to those questions. >> bill: juan is saying retail politics working. the stock market is doing well now. that doesn't really help the folks too much unless the businesses that are accumulating this money then reinvest and hire people which is, of course, a question of when it is not happening right now. >> i would say that if you want to encourage people to be entrepreneurs, if you want to encourage striving in this country. if you want to encourage our best and brightest. you want this. you want government that says we are trying to increase upward mobility in this society. we believe in young people. >> for our friends and our buddies. >> no, for everybody. i'm an immigrant kid latin
america. i have got to tell you -- >> bill: this is peter cruze's argument. for the past few years i have been doing radio talking points. this year i stopped doing it. i just stopped doing it on friday because my tax burden is now so high then i had to pay agent commissions. all of that. it wasn't worth for me to do it. i can't do it not worth my time anymore. three or fewer people then didn't lose their jobs entirely but they loss a big portion of their jobs because i walked away from a situation which wasn't economically tenable anymore because the federal and state government in new york, okay, taking too much money. it's not worth me doing it anymore. and this is what i'm talking about, juan. that the giant colossus of take, take, take, from me the entrepreneur, is harming the economy and that is one small example that's irrefutable, juan. >> i think it's irrefutable in your very high level
situation. but i think most people would look at you, bill, and say well you do your tv show, you do your wonderful book. it certainly hasn't stopped you from being an active part. >> bill: people there is going to come a time that it's not just going to be worth it anymore, juan. then a lot of people are reaching that go ahead, mary katharine. >> that's the thing, bill. many folks with fewer resources than you the decision to stop doing certain things comes a lot sooner. they are not able to do a bunch. that's what a lot of liberals miss. very seductive we are going to give everyone everything and help everyone out. great there is a cost. i feel like people like ted cruze. >> consequences of this big government. i have got 30 seconds. >> people raised by cuban immigrants understand that. >> bill: you gave me a one word answer in the beginning. i need kind of a one word answer here. conyers from the congressman from michigan 17 trillion-dollar debt is no big deal. not important. >> dick cheney said the same thing. i happen to think that we need to reign in spending. >> bill: you don't think
conniers is right on that? >> no. >> bill: all right. good. juan williams and mary katharine ham. next on the run down sarah palin working over our pal karl rove verbally. what does brit hume think about that? later adam carolla strikes back against the huffington post implying is he a racist. jessica controversy growing in colorado. we're coming right back. hey, our salads.

[ laughter ] >> head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> i would say if i did run for office and win, i would
serve out my term. i wouldn't leave office in midterm. >> bill: oh. mr. rove referring to governor palin resigning as governor of alaska in 2009. obviously no love lost there. joining us now from miami, fox news senior political analyst brit hume. first of all, hume, did you borrow that from hillary clinton's pants suit? >> this is my south beach look, bill. don't knock it. >> bill: i can see you in south beach. really, i'm going to send watters down to follow you around in south beach. >> yeah. i will introduce him to some people, bill. >> bill: yeah. just give me a call tonight about 2:00 a.m. from liquid, all right? just do that for me. >> i have no idea where that is. >> bill: we'll get you a map. palin vs. rove. now, this epit tom mizes, does it not. a split in the republican party, the tea party palin against the moderate rove. >> symbolizes whatever
split there is. i think it's much ado about not much and here is why. these are the kinds of skirmishes that can happen in a party after a disappointing loss in a big election which is what we are looking at here. these two you will notice are not quarreling over ideas. they are -- it's not their positions on the issues vary widely. these are a position about whether karl rove should be applying his strategic knowledge to the campaign or whether that job should fall to somebody else. and in the end it doesn't really matter because the strategy and tactics of the upcoming campaign, which is still years away will be decided upon by the candidate and that candidate's team. so, you know, this is just sort of after action skirmishing i think. it may last a while. >> bill: isn't there a purity issue in the republican party now where sarah palin and some other very committed serves -- conservatives think that karl rove isn't pure enough to be a republican. he is a kel out. a watered down guy, the rhino thing.
republican in name only. isn't that still in play? >> yeah, and that's been a feature of republican party politics for as long as i can remember. there was always this segment of the party for whom no one is conservative enough. there was a -- listen, when ronald reagan was president, the people who represented what they thought was the -- you know, the real republican wing of the republican party, often complained about him, that he wasn't conservative enough to suit them either. sarah palin, despite having bailed out of public office, still has a following in the republican party, and you know, you criticize her, you hear about it. so does karl rove, he has influence with a lot of people who are prepared to put money behind his strategic thinking and the mistake that was made here that got rove into this trouble in my judgment is that when he and his group decided they were going to try to have influence in these primaries they announced that the people who felt that rove represented the failures of the bush years and so on, that was a red flag and you are seeing the reaction to
it. >> bill: okay. but having talked to karl rove many, many times on this program, i can tell you that he is a guy who doesn't want a conservative litmus test to limit some candidates who may be more moderate and appeal to a wider circle. he doesn't want that kind of party where i think sarah palin does want it i think republicans are are going to have to come to grips with that. >> well, they have to decide in some cases whether they're willing to settle for a candidate who has a better chance of win hog may not be as pure on a conservative. >> that's what the romney situation was all about. and romney failed. >> very bold in that. >> they are. but they are congenitally unhappy. i have been covering this stuff for decades now. there are people in the republican party and in the conservative movement who are seldom happy except with certain candidates. if those candidates get nominated and have to go on and make the compromisees
that politicians make. they end up enhappy with them as well. this is just part of the landscape. >> as history shows the two most extreme candidates in recent times were barry goldwater and george mcgovern and both got hammered. so i think you are right. just real quickly on the ted cruze barack obama front. isn't it interesting that both of their stories revolve around, you know, a rags to riches in america the greatest nation on earth but they both see this country so differently? think really do. don't they. look at the line of work that president obama went into. you know, it was a law professor and a community organizer. and i think he was probably a liberal from the jump. and ted cruise comes out of a different political atmosphere. texas is very different from chicago he has the experience and the background of a guy who made it from scratch in the state of texas, which is -- you know low tax opportunity state. and you see the effect it's had on these two men, not
that they wouldn't have those convictions anyway you can see it. >> bill: the nation is going to have to decide i think in the next four years what kind of country they want. because this is not going to be able to compromised. it's too big. brit hume, everybody, living large down there in miami. if you need any help, brit, call us tonight and we will help you out. directly ahead, a grizzly murder in colorado. will the woman beat the rap? there she is. big beef tonight. those reports after these messages.

times. slit his throat and shot him in the head. >> if you still felt threatened after having shot mr. alexander, why did you use a knife instead of just shooting again? >> well, i know that i dropped the gun when he hit me and i don't know where the gun went. when we fell, it was no longer in my hand. and i don't really remember picking up the knife. i just remember feeling threatened. and he was the immediate threat. >> bill: this murder case has now captured the attention of millions of americans, joining us from phoenix to handicap the case monica lind strawm criminal defense attorney who has been in the courtroom. why do you think this case has now broken out and so many people are at ing attention to it? >> well, first of all, it's a death penalty case. and in arizona, if she is convicted, she would be only the fourth woman on death row here in arizona. but i think it has gained so much attention because it has all the craziness of a horror movie.
we have got young people who had a sexual relationship. we have religion involved. and we have got just a pretty defendant with just a heinous, brutal killing. so all those put together, that's why everybody is paying attention to this. >> bill: what's the religion component. >> they are both hormone. travis alexander, the victim had grown up mormon. he has been a mormon his whole life jodi arias, the defendant, converted to mormonism just prior to dating travis alexander. we have a very large mormon community here in arizona. so that has gained a lot of attention. but i think just the fact that a religion is involved and it's so involved here, that's really important to a lot of people watching we just heard the judge reading questions to ms. areas, they came from the jury, right? in your observation of the try trial being in the courtroom how do you think it's going? >> i don't think it's good for jodi at all. arizona is one the few
states that allows the jury to ask the witness questions. she was on the stand for 18 days the jury had over 220 questions for her. that is unbelievable. it was the tone and word of those questions themselves. they asked her things such as why should we believe you now? why don't you have a memory of this? why didn't you call the cops? the questions were very direct, concise and, to me, they had no sympathy at all for her. and it really sounded like they were not believing what she had been saying. >> bill: all right. now, in arizona the self-defense defense can acquit anybody on any violent charge. she claims that this guy, the victim, all right, the boyfriend, was beating her up or whatever. is there any physical evidence to back that? no all we have is her allegations that he physically abused her five times in the past. it ranged anything from grabbing her by the wrist in anger or pushing her
down and choking her out to where she lost consciousness or she believed that she lost consciousness. other than that, there is no proof at all. there is no police reports, medical reports. there is no pictures. there is nothing in her diary or her journal. >> how about the night in question when the alleged murder took place. she says he was hitting me or whatever, did the police take her in? is there any documentation of that? her lawyer put forth that look at this woman. she was beat up. or there was a scuffle, nothing? >> nothing. he gets out of the shower. he body slams her. a fight ensues. >> if a man body slams a woman. there is physical -- you know, you can see the bruising there. >> you know. you would think so. >> bill: there is no bruising? >> well, she took off. she tried to clean up the scene and then she left and went to utah and then she went back home to california. so his body wasn't discovered for another six days. and then she wasn't arrested until after. >> goes to utah and
california. then she returns to arizona and the guy is laying there for six days? >> yeah. he -- he wasn't found. she killed him on june 4th. he wasn't found until the evening of the 9th. >> bill: how does she explain the flight? >> she says that she doesn't remember anything after she shot him. she took off. she tried to cover her tracks because she wanted to throw off suspicion because she was so ashamed. so upset that she had done. this she knew she was going to be arrested. but she wanted to try to keep everybody off track as long as she could. >> >> yeah. and now she is going to try to claim battered woman's syndrome. >> bill: you have to. she is fight for her life. >> doesn't have anything else. >> when do you think this verdict will come down? >> i would say case has another 2 to 3 weeks because we are so on the defense case. and then the state gets its rebuttal case. >> that will make some of the competition very happy. all right. mondayca. thanks very much. we appreciate it.

>> bill: thanks for staying with us. >> i'm bill o'reilly in the weekdays with bernie segment tonight. on friday we produced two california law enforcement officials who told us flat out the state needs jessica's law. we could have produced 10. we did that because the editorial director of "the denver post" said this: >> no one in law enforcement in colorado. >> bill: no one. >> reported it in 2007. >> bill: no one. >> 2009 or again this year. >> bill: okay. >> in fact, it's probably beauty up when the republicans are in the minority in colorado. not when they had the majority. it's been used against democrats as a wedge issue politically. >> bill: all right. but you don't know whether you support it or not. all you know is that -- >> -- i said no one. >> bill: believe me, i will get law enforcement from colorado on here and i will make you look foolish on that statement. >> bill: which i did on friday. now, we expected the colorado media to pick up the story but thus far they have not. with us now the purveyor of bernard goldberg.com,
mr. goldberg. this story is important because it epitomizes what i believe is happening in the united states that the press is no longer interested in the news. all right? now, maybe there is a lot of stuff going on in colorado that we don't know about. and maybe the other newspapers and the television, local news, this, that, maybe they have too much to worry about possible corruption between the democratic party in colorado and the largest newspaper there. and the vital issue of jessica's law. maybe they just have too much, bernie. >> maybe, and maybe not. i don't know if colorado tv is typical of american local tv. but the pew research center just came out with a poll on local television they only serve four markets in the whole country. i don't know if it's a good survey or not. here is what they found. you ready for this? only 20% of the stories on local television on longer than one minute in length. 20%. 80% are less than a minute.
40% of the entire newscast is filled with sports, weather and traffic. 40%. almost half the newscast. and when it comes to government or politics. only 3% of the newscast is filled with that. so, that explains a lot. >> bill: here is the danger. we saw and we discussed this with you last week. there is a wide perception that president obama is getting favorable treatment at the national level by the press and you would assume that bleeds down the local level as well. >> that's not just a perception. >> if you believe that or not finance in play if it's true and it looks like it is. that helps president obama immeasurablably. the media tends to ignore stories that make him look bad. uninformed electorate which is growing in this country gets the perception that is he a winner a good guy that he is an effective president. so what we have here is that the press is not
promoting the news anymore. in business to promote a certain candidate. that's why we did this denver post story. even using the same language against me. >> right. but i think you missed something that is a big story. and i'm not sure how you missed it. >> bill: there you go. >> tell me if you agree with me. in the interview you did with hubbard. the ed toward page editor and in the sound cut you played in the lead-in to this segment right now. hubbard says that when the republics are in the majority in the colorado legislature they don't bring up jessica's law. >> bill: i don't care about that. >> what do you mean you don't care about that? why not? >> the democrats have controlled now for a few years and i'm trying to get this law passed now. all i want is for the legislature to vote tonget everybody gets on the record who opposes. >> you don't care. >> i don't have the history of it i don't have time to do a history lesson on
colorado. we are dealing with the here and now. that's why i didn't do it. this is a program that has time constraints as well. i'm trying to get -- >> -- had you a republican legislature on the show. i for get her name. >> bill: she is now sponsoring this business. i could have asked her why five years ago -- >> -- why didn't you republicans bring it up if it is so important. >> bill: she is bringing it up. they introduced it and can't get anywhere. >> they bring it up in the democrats are in the majority to use it against the democrats. >> bill: i didn't want to get involved with partisan politics in colorado. it doesn't interest me. i want the vote to take place. and i think it should take place. but now we can't even get the denver media to report on this story. and this is a huge story. >> there is another reason for that, i think. as a national correspondent several decades at cbs news i have noticed. this when a national news organization comes in and goes big with a story that the locals pretty much have either ignored or down played,. >> bill: they don't want to be embarrassed. >> no they don't want to be
embarrassed they really don't. >> this becomes a story about the parties, democrats, largest newspaper in the state actually working together and merging. >> it certainly. >> bill: it's huge. >> we don't know there is collusion. to prove there is collusion you would have to know they talk to each other and got together and said hey, let's do this and that. >> bill: are you alisyn in wonderland? the wording is almost identical. >> let me finish the sentence. i'm the one who said on this program two weeks ago it's, number one, the wording is almost, i said that first before you said it. >> bill: between a fundraiser democrat and his column. >> the ideas are the same. the fundraising letter and the op. ed came out four days apart. >> bill: right. >> yeah. it certainly looks suspicious. >> bill: right. >> no question about that. >> bill: maybe the denver local media could investigate and move the story forward bill. >> did you hear what i said in the beginnings? you never listen to me. >> story more than a minute and they wouldn't do it. >> bill: maybe they could break it up over five
nights and do 45 seconds each night. >> well -- >> bill: so cynical goldberg. >> i'm saying local news, listen, when i was in local news 100 years ago we covered government and stuff like that. >> bill: i did the same thing when i was in denver. i did it in denver. >> it's different now. >> bill: bernie goldberg, everybody. adam carolla on deck is he angry. some opining situations due to break down of the family. carolla was accused of racism. he will reply in just a few moments. what's droid-endurance ? the longest 4g lte battery in a razr thin profile. with 32 hours of battery life that turns an all-nighter, into a two-nighter. the droid razr maxx hd by motorola. droid-endurance. droid-powerful.

carolla put forth that some the welfare dolled out in america is because the family structure is broken down in many minority communities. after hearing that the huffington post scorched carolla implying that he he was a racist. on march 7th, carolla struck back. >> the huffington post has come out with a story that says adam carolla to good afternoon newsom what's wrong with blacks and latinos? >> that's not what i said to gavin newsom. i didn't bring up blacks and latinos. he brought them up. me saying parents should stick around and raise their children, me saying families and cultures should focus on education is not radical or revolutionary it's the [bleep] truth. you are the system gavin newsome, fix the system. but you won't fix the system because you know he what it takes to fix the system and you are [bleep] coward. guys like huffington post, you guys [bleep] line up behind me these people.
you have blood on your hands because the problem could be fixed. >> bill: joining us from l.a. is adam carolla. you weren't surprised that the left-wing media would brand you a racist. that's what they do to everyone who is critical of the minority community or the gay community or anybody perceived to be vulnerable if you criticize them. then they attack you personally. you know that. >> sure. >> as a matter of fact, if the huffington post was around, they would have called the doctor who discovered sickle cell a racist. that's just what they do. and my point is there is a problem, i would like to look at the problem, honestly and attempt to solve it, but we can't solve it if you are calling everyone who is attempting to solve the problem a racist. >> bill: absolutely true. i couldn't have said it better myself. when you say gavin newsom should -- could solve the problem. what should gavin newsom do and politicians like him, liberal politicians? what should they do to make
things better in precincts that have divided families, collapsed families? what should they do? >> well, first, stop standing around and saying that the system is broken, when you are in charge of the system. it's like a crew chief on a nascar team going don't blame me, the car's broken. the car is broken. well, you are in charge of the car, so you fix the car. so, the system is broken when you are in charge of the system, it's the worse answer i have ever heard. the first thing you need to do is admit there is a problem. the second thing you need to do is distill the problem down to what it is, which is lack of parenting and single family parents and the history of poverty and the per pettation of poverty because of this. and then you have to do something that they are not willing to do because they need their vote. they have to be willing to
judge. and they will not judge. >> bill: no judgments made about fathers abandoning. they say it's bad but they don't go in and form any programs to humiliate the fathers who abandon their children or the girls who are getting pregnant at 13 or 14. i mean, just here in new york city, we had a campaign by the mayor's office to discourage young girls from getting pregnant, all the aclus no, you can't target them and this and that. so we know what the problem is. and we know that the left is never going to confront the problem. but you say they won't do it for venal reasons. that they want to keep people in the poor precincts dependent on them. do you really believe that? >> well, they don't -- they would like it if they stopped shooting each other. they would like it if they got out of poverty. they would like it if they tested higher in stashed dyed testing. they would like it. they have nothing against those people but they need their vote and they know this message that i'm attempting to send is not going to get their vote.
so, what they need is a magic wand. they don't have a magic wand. they will take the votes over the criticism any day of the week. and that's basically -- they are making a deal essential a tacet agreement. we won't say anything. we will look the other way. have you ever seen that movie the town? did you ever see that movie, bill? >> yeah. >> there was that part they robbed the bank and they were jumping out of the van and they saw a boston cop and they sort of looked at them and he saw them with their assault rifles and he looked at them answered looked the other way meaning i don't want to shoot you, you don't want to shoot me, i want to keep my job. that's what they do. >> bill: all right, adam carolla everybody. factor tip of the day. one of the most common phrases we all use in the english language causing some trouble. the tip 60 seconds away. it's monday. a brand new start. your chance to rise and shine.
